Cleanup Proprietary PowerShell Scripts to Share With the Community

Before sharing code with the external world, there are a few essential questions to consider.

Involvement in some kind of technical community is a beautiful thing.

I cannot recommend enough how important it is to be involved in some kind of technical community. However, when it comes to sharing code in a community, things can sometimes get hairy. Some companies frown upon sharing for fear of exposing the company’s intellectual property or an inadvertent exposure of internal details. These are valid concerns, but if your company does allow you to share, it is important to be diligent. You must ensure that any company-specific information is removed from your code before exposing it to the outside world.

There are a few questions you should ask yourself before hitting the publish button to share code (PowerShell scripts in this case) with the world outside of your company.
